This is a rare and exceptional silk scarf made by the venerable English firm Liberty of London. You rarely see Liberty scarves of this age and this one is a particularly good example. I’ve counted seven different colours, which is quite amazing given the intricacy of the print. Liberty would use woodcuts to print each colour one at a time - the more colours and the more complicated the pattern, the more difficult to register the colours due to fabric stretch, so Liberty would waste a lot of material in producing well registered prints. You imagine sometimes printing six colours and when you get to the seventh, it prints off-register, ruining all of the work already performed. Liberty would often use old blocks in their inventory to produce printed fabric, and this particular design looks quite old to me. In any case, it is quite fabulous, printed in striking colours and a gorgeous pattern.
Colours: Turquoise, purple, pink, gold yellow, blue, red, black and dropped out white

Label: Cloth label that reads Liberty Made in England in upper case
